Managing Your Career in Investor Relations
May 5, 2016 – 12:00 pm ET
NIRI defines investor relations as ‘a strategic management responsibility that integrates finance, communication, marketing and securities law compliance to enable the most effective two-way communication between a company, the financial community, and other constituencies, which ultimately contributes to a company’s securities achieving fair valuation.’
Moving into a career in IR is an exciting prospect for anyone up to the challenge. There are also many opportunities to transition into other roles within a company using the skills and experience obtained as an IRO.
Leading the discussion will be Judith Cushman, President of Cushman Associates; Tony Diaz, Principal, StrategyIR LLC; and Laurent Bernard, Vice President Global Talent Management, Steelcase.
